Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Enter has proven to be quite popular amongst fans, who like him not only because of his enjoyment of being the bad guy, but also due to being a quite credible threat, being able to go toe-to-toe with the Go-Busters in fights and succeeding in several of his missions. His proving to be very Dangerously Genre Savvy and learning for his mistakes as the show moves on has made fans like him even more.
Among the heroes, the most popular character is, oddly, Usada.
Now we have Beet Buster and Stag Buster. Their hilarious antics and awesome design and fighting style really help.
Since the 'exporting' of Super Sentai internationally under the name Power Rangers is old news by now in Japan, the whole premise of Rangers protecting their world's power supply (the whole Enetron shebang) may have been Toei's attempt to create literal Power Rangers.
One old rumor before Go-Busters aired was that Gavan would be the teams mentor. Thirty episodes later, guess who appears? Well...Mind you, not the one we were thinking of.
In #33, the Powered Custom Super Mode involves an addon to the morpher that fuses our heroes bodily with their Buddyroid partners...kinda like CycloneJokerXtreme. As if reinforcing this, Red sticks to close-quarter combat (like CycloneJoker), Blue summons a girder that he uses like a staff (HeatMetal), and Yellow sticks with the shooting (LunaTrigger)!
Ryuji was not the first blue ranger to have problems with Overheating. Gosei Blue had in one episode too and, while Ryuji gets psychotical, Hyde gets HILARIOUS.
And in Mission 49, he goes even further, assimilating an Enetron tank, turning it into a Megazord, along with dozens of innocent employees. He even attempted to absorb children! And his final plan has him doing this all over the world. As if we needed any more reason for him to be deleted!
Enter after his defeat in Mission 30. Somehow him becoming more stoic and calm with only occasional traces of his troll-like persona remaining. Somehow this makes him even more disturbing than he already was.
Well, Escape's megazord debut. She takes Enter and CRUSHES him using the megazord's hands. It's pretty graphical for a show like this and there's the crushing sound to make everything better.
They Just Didn't Care: You know it is bad when the spin-off seriesAkibaranger gets more effort poured into rather than the Sentai of the year. Later on Kamen Rider Wizard also suffered from the same problem, with Akibaranger's second season airing on the same year.
Let's not get started with the Go-Busters themselves, they would have getting Character Development if the staff puts more effort on them.
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Messiah's origin is never revealed. Being a computer virus, one would think that it'd be a man-made entity, and some speculation is made regarding its origins (perhaps the scientists at the facility, or even Hiromu's parents created it). It would have made for an excellent reveal during the late stages of the series, but it was never even hinted at or touched on.
Tough Act to Follow: Go-Busters is a great show, but had the misfortune of coming after Gokaiger, which was brimming with awesome. It's worse if you compare it to Kobayashi's previous Sentai, Shinkenger, where the cup runneth over with epic dramatic awesome every single episode.
Uncanny Valley: An intentional case. Hiromu's face on Enter's head is very... off.
Vindicated by History: The season has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity for the same reasons people derided it at first (being too different). Especially from Kamen Rider fans and people disappointed with Kyoryuger and ToQger.
Notable is the almost complete lack of stock footage, especially when the previous season was full of it.
Wangst: Hiromu. Everytime he's not acting stoicly, being scared by chicken or kicking Vaglass butts, tends to whine, especially over his missing and now dead parents. When Enter reveals that he has the last Messiah Card in his body, he's even considering suiciding himself in order to kill Enter. Seriously?
